Most of us think of Labor Day as the annual holiday that marks the unofficial end of summer. By now, most of kids are back in school, and the swimming gear has been put away for yet another year.
I have a confession to make.
I am not normal.
I build websites for a living. I love photography. I am a husband to a beautiful woman. A father to an amazing son.
There are a lot of things that I am. Normal is not one of them.
Nearly a year ago, I heard about a new coffee shop that had just opened the town where we live, called Purdy’s Coffee Company. Although I write and work from home, there are days when I need a change of scenery. So, when I learned about Purdy’s, it wasn’t long before I just had to check it out.
Like many this time of year, I get caught up in the thrill and excitement of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. From filling out brackets, to watching them quickly erode when every year’s “Cinderderella Story” makes a deep run. I can’t get enough of it and try to catch as much of it as I can on TV. By the time the Final Four rolls around, my wife is ready to hide the remote.
As I wrote about in my last post, I faced a number of hurdles during my quest to start a blog. Over time, I began to wonder if I was ever going to accomplish the very thing I felt deeply compelled to do.
Telling my story is something that I have wanted to do for some time. I excelled in writing during college; and, over the years, friends and family complimented me on my abilities. As a follower of Christ, I even felt a ‘calling’ to share my story and life experiences through writing. Even though I had all of these things encouraging and pushing me, I still resisted. Why?
Hi. My name is Kris Hammons and I want to welcome you to my blog. My wife, Breanne, and I are both little people (otherwise known as dwarfs). We live in Richmond, Kentucky, with our son, Noah. I work from home as a front-end web developer, and Breanne is a stay-at-home mom. You can learn more about me, my family and our story on the about page.
